DRUG/ALCOHOL WITHDRAWAL PROGRAM – RECOVERY AND ADDICTION MEDICINE PROGRAM (R.A.M.P)
Our mission for Wooster Community Hospital’s Recovery and Addiction Medicine Program is to provide effective drug and alcohol withdrawal treatment to all people with dignity and respect. We believe that all people have the right to quality care and assistance to receive the long-term treatment they deserve. We believe there is hope for every person we serve through individualized treatment planning.
Inpatient Withdrawal Assistance Program for Adults
WCH is proud to partner with One Eighty to offer a voluntary inpatient withdrawal assistance program for adults who are addicted to opioids, alcohol, benzodiazepines, and related substances. Wooster Hospital’s treatment program is led by the dedicated hospitalist team and nursing staff with input and guidance from Dr. Nicole Labor, an addiction medicine physician (addictionologist), with specialized training in treating people with substance abuse problems.
Our inpatient withdrawal treatment program accepts adults who are currently under the influence, experiencing acute withdrawal symptoms, or are otherwise appropriate for treatment. We accept most insurance plans.
Inpatient Withdrawal Treatment
Inpatient withdrawal treatment consists of a medically supervised hospital stay that typically lasts between 3 and 5 days and includes:
- Prescreening and admission, requiring a diagnosis of need by a licensed physician
- Assessment of patient’s needs, including medical history, physical, and lab tests
- Medical treatment and observation
- Discharge planning, including referral to an appropriate outpatient or residential treatment facility and resources
Patients admitted to WCH’s inpatient withdrawal treatment program receive care from dedicated hospital personnel, including an attending physician, nursing staff, and an addiction medicine counselor. This ensures each patient receives the attention and supervision needed to safely undergo withdrawal while hospitalized. Each patient is assigned a recovery coach to offer assistance and support during their journey to sobriety.
